president obama to keep that promise that he made to millions of americans. we can't protect them all. the only way we can honor that promise for every american is to repeal the healthcare law. but for millions of americans, they actually would be able to keep the healthcare plan that they actually like. we would give them that freedom that president obama and the healthcare law is taking away from millions of americans. >> two promises, one is that those plans a lot of people want to so-called keep they don't exist anymore. the insurance companies are just booth them out so you really can't have the plan that you want. >> they could reintroduce those easily. >> you can't enforce the insurance companies to offer them again. >> they certainly. would the mrkt place would certainly allow that part of the problem with the new plans have additional man datsz so their cost is being driven up which is the other promise in terms of lowering the -- bending the cost curve down. that also is a broken promise by this president. >> the other problem fors i tooa look at a couple they are junk polic

major policy differences with president obama on about everything. i mean, i believe in american exceptional sxichl standing strong with israel and lower taxes and decentralization of federal government to lower level and sanctity of human live and less regulation and taxation and lidigation. and president obama he can't be blamed for a economy that is killing for the mitted class or broken promiseless for taxes going up for people making 200,000 or coping your health plan or doctor or dismal standing in the eyes of the nation of the world. even our friends are spitting mad at us. it turns out it is not his fault. because he didn't know anything about it. any of it. >> it is not manage i have followed closely. but we don't know. i am not familiar. he indicated he was not aware of what was happening in fast and furious. certainly i was not. >> i mean, i don't know. there was a lot development of the website. i don't know. >> nobody understood what was taking place. >> we don't have independent knowledge. he found in the nows report. >> i first learned about it in the same news re
?" like many americans, this is a person that actually believed president obama when he promised that if you like the insurance you had, you could keep it. now she's learned that under the president's health care law, that it's not just a web site. it is a broken promise. it turns out that if the white house likes your plan, then you can keep it. if the white house doesn't like your plan, then you're out of luck. you can't keep it. yesterday the obama administration finally admitted that millions of people across the country will lose their insurance. now we know all of these ways that the president's health care law is more than a failed web site. so the big question now is, what don't we know yet? what is still out there that the american people don't know about the health care law? how much worse are things going to get before the white house admits that the entire law is broken? we've seen one headline after another about problems with the health care law that the obama administration knew about -- knew about, mr. president -- and would not admit. one revelation after another

. >> what obama care is doing right now is undermining and really tearing apart private insurance companies. >> oh, yeah, and then doing such a great job, michelle. they were bankrupting american corporation. american corporations complain about the high cost of health care under those pry vatd insurance companies. >> go ahead, michelle. >> look, what they're doing is they're choking them, like kim said. they're doing it through red tape, through regulations. that's not what we need right now. we need -- what's going to happen is we're going to see employers drop tons of people into the exchanges and then we're just going to see what we're seeing in europe. >> oh, yes. is that what you say about social security, medicare, you don't like any of it. >> that's another topic. we'll do that next week. we've got to go right now. john, first topic next block. >>> coming up, after years of avoiding it, the mainstream media finally sounding the alarm about obama care. why that could be the best news we've heard in years. [ male announcer ] progresso's so passionate about its new tomato florentine so
about what the nsa does with regards to american communication and president obama repeatedly misled the public. in all sorts of ways, without warrants, the nsa is frequently monitoring the communication of american citizens. that is a major part of the scandal and article after article has proven that. >> some of the things that ed snowden reported, let me read from the "washington post." in the preceding 30 days, the report said, field collectors had processed and sent back 181 million new records, including met a data indicating who sent e-mails as well as content and text. these are mind-boggling revelations. >> let me just ask any journalist or viewer who is listening to this whether or not, when thinking about mr. snowden, they would prefer to have remained ignorant about all the things they have learned that their own government is doing to their privacy and their communications completely in the dark and with no accountability. even if you're somebody who believes you want a state that collects everybody's communications which is a daunting thing. but if you believe that, sho
couple of years are horrible. some of the things said about president obama are horrible. ike he's a christian, i think he's an american. i disagree with him on probably 99% of the things he wants to but you can have a civil discussion when you have these things. when you go outside the lines, it doesn't help, not even a little bit. >> chip, daniella, good to see both of you. thank you. >>> if you read only one thing this morning, such an interesting story in "the new york times" about bullying. when should parents stay out of it and when do they get involved? let me take a premise from the article and you can tell me what you think. the author wrote, quote, when one of my sons was being pushed around by a bigger kid in middle school he popped the kid back and that was the end of it. while i wasn't aware of the situation until afterward, there have been times that i counselled them to do just that, hit the jerk back and shut him up. is that good advice? check out my must read and let me know. you guys are saying,dale wrote retaliation in any situation of assault, verbal or physic
' leadership the obama administration will not tell us how many americans have tried to sign up for obamacare or how many have actually signed up for obamacare or what level of insurance they've purchased or in what zip code they live. not only can they not tell us, they've done their best to keep us from finding out. with wicki leaks and edward snowden spilling our beans every day what's happening on the exchanges is the best-kept secret in washington, d.c. the national security agency could learn something from secretary sebelius. today i will ask consent to approve a six-page bill i introduced yesterday to require the the administration to answer these questions every week. secretary sebelius is not responsible for enacting obamacare, but she has been responsible for three and a half years for implementing it. now many americans have only a few weeks to purchase new insurance or be without health insurance. to expect the secretary to correct in a few weeks what she's not been able to do in three and a half years is unrealistic. mr. president, it's time for the president to ask the secretar
over and over again. now, in fact for about 15 million americans who have individual health insurance, that's not true. right now, individual policy holders are getting letters from their insurance companies, in some cases canceling coverage, offering new obama care, compliant policies that cover more and may also cost more. even though many will be getting federal monies. it's not quite the same as saying nothing will change. that with president obama is making that promise. he knew it, it seems, jim acosta at the white house. jim, how do you know we know he knew that? >> what the president is really talking about is the vast majority of americans who already receive their health care through their employer, through medicare, medicaid, through the v. about 5% of the insurance market do get their coverage on the individual market. and that those people are being affected. they don't deny that. but they do say that the president was not misleading people when he made that claim. he was just talking about the vast majority of americans when he was making that claim repeatedly. here's ho
one time political rival, former governor mitt romney. the white house has said mr. obamas main message today will be to be patient. >> ok. we'll see if americans listen to that. >> let's bring in randall pinkton joining us from washing top. is there any indication how the secretary will handle the questions today if it turns hostile? >> we expect that it will be turning hostile. that's a fairly good certainty. she's expected to give more of an explanation about what is being done, the specifics about the plan, the hiring of the technical experts, who are trying to fix the problems with the website. of course, she will probably also apologize, but we are expecting that secretary see bellous will be much more defensive in her responses, rather than yesterday. yesterday was the apology, today, what they're doing to fix it. >> we're hearing a lot in the last few days about americans receiving notices that they will not be renewed next year for their health care insurance. can we expect specifics today from secretary sebelius? >> not quite sure how many specifics we're going to get
are worried that more and more americans will be angered when they learn about the real costs of obama care and that they may lose their doctors. but the big story is this. because of the obama care failure, president obama's entire second-term agenda is now in serious jeopardy. just listen to what mitt romney had to say on "meet the press." >> i think that fundamental dishonesty has really put in peril the whole foundation of his second term. i think the key thing that the president is trying to get away from, and that is that he told people he could keep their insurance, and that was not the truth. and whether you like the model of obama care or not, the fact that the president sold it on a basis that was not true has undermined the foundation of his second term. i think it's rotting it away. >> all right. so is mitt romney right on "meet the press"? is president obama's second term rotting away? and is obama care busting him the way he thought he was going to bust the gop for the 2014 midterms? how things change. all right. we are pleased to be joined tonight by bill kristol, he's founde
